Re: wrong spelling
Poster: "Ed Hopkins" <Ed.Hopkins@MCI.Com>
The Poeta Atlantiae quoted another poet thus:
> "A one-l lama is a priest
> A two-l llama is a beast
> An I will bet a pink pyjama
> There isn't any three-l lllama"
> Ogden Nash
then added parenthetically:
> (BTW, there is a tale that someone once told Nash that a "Three alarm-er"
> (pronouncable as three-l lllama) is a fairly big fire by fireman standards.
> His response, purportedly, was "pooh." (or words to that effect)
When you say "that effect", do you mean the effect of refusing
to pay up on the bet he'd lost?
(who narrowly avoiding insulting the Cymry just now)
